U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu to chair Senate Small Business Committee

December 18, 2008

Congratulations are in order for U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, who’s been selected to chair the United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship. That’s good news for Louisiana’s small businesses; Landrieu’s efforts in 2008 alone earned her the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Guardian of Small Business Award and the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“Bolstered by my seats on other key committees for our state, this assignment provides the seniority to fight even harder for Louisiana’s more than 350,000 small businesses,” said Sen. Landrieu, who also chairs the Disaster Recovery Subcommittee of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and a subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee. She is also a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
